OAuth 2 for me and you

Authentication is key when dealing with the web, certainly when calling, liaising with and using external API services. You may even need to implement ( or may already have ) your own authentication service for your apps or for others to use.

In this session, Matt will discuss the OAuth 2 protocol, what it means to be a consumer or provider, and how to navigate the handshake communications between the service. At the end of this session, you will walk taller, safe in the fact that you are filled with knowledge of OAuth 2, how to use it and how to build your own service.
